Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 “Knock and it shall be opened”
Hark! tis the Master’s voice
Giving this gracious promise,
Bidding the heart rejoice.
“Knock and it shall be opened”
Oh, will you knock today?
Why should you still be exiled?
Why need you turn away?

“Knock and it shall be opened;
Seek and ye shall find;
Knock and it shall be opened,
Seek and ye shall find.”

2 Knock while the daylight lingers;
Knock ere the night-dews fall;
Hasten your timid footsteps,
Hark to your Master’s call.
Question no more, but quickly
Knock, for He waiting stands
Over against the gateway,
Life in His outstretched hands. [Refrain]

3 “Knock and it shall be opened!”
While it is called today
Yield to the Spirit’s pleading,
Enter the narrow way.
Turn from the paths of darkness;
Now is the time to choose!
“Knock and it shall be opened”—
Can you such grace refuse? [Refrain]
